A small town kid in the big city? Now that's nothing new. In the case of Navid Baraty, however, the city itself is small. This Ohio native has photographed cities all over the world, distinguishing himself through his unusual perspective and subject matter. Focusing on urban architecture, particularly road intersections, Baraty brings a whole new outlook to major metropolitan cities, recently capturing New York City and Tokyo. While in an intersection, the vibrant colors, striking geometry, and movement can become lost, but when you're above it, you can truly appreciate its beauty and details.
